Maps and Nature

Hello Friends,

I am a freelance graphic and book designer. In my spare time I work on my own projects.

My partner and I have swapped the city for the countryside. We are enjoying nature and the laid back atmosphere here. I am glad to have left the open plan office and the city for a more fulfilling way of life.

I have an interest in languages, particularly non Latin writing systems. I’ve designed typographic maps in Japanese, Hindi, Hebrew etc. To fit into your world I’m offering them in a wide range of coloured backgrounds.

The wildlife here has inspired me to create a series of plant paintings and prints.

My shop has now gone mostly digital with exceptions. I think it is better for the planet, if artworks are printed locally rather than shipped around the world.

I hope you’ll find something here for yourself and your friends.
Thank you for dropping by and enjoy browsing my shop.
